The RChain Cooperative was formed in January 2017 to steward the development and progression of the RChain platform. The cooperative provides the foundational support necessary for RChain to grow into, and remain, a publicly owned and operated information utility. RChain Co-op members invigorate the ecosystem with constant experimentation of governance models, empowering individual agency within a collective.
Lucius Gregory (Greg) Meredith is the president of the RChain Cooperative. Greg is a mathematician, and the discoverer of the rho-calculus, a co-inventor of the LADL algorithm, and the inventor of the ToGL approach to graph theory.
Vlad Zamfir is a researcher with the Ethereum Foundation. He is the lead developer of the Casper protocol upgrade best known for his work on cryptoeconomics, proof-of-stake, and blockchain sharding.
Evan Jensen is a lawyer and a technologist, also with an LLM in Innovation and Technology from Seattle University School of Law, and has been with RChain since the formation of the Cooperative. He has always been an enthusiast of video games and hopes blockchain technology will enable the creation of the ultimate global online arcade, in the classical style where users pay perhaps 25 cents to play a game of their choice once, forever replacing the "freemium" garbage that has become ubiquitious with a direct, independent distribution and payment system that is clear, simple, and fair.
Eric Meng (Dimworm) is the founder of WeNode and TokenJar. Eric has 20 years’ experience in high-tech and telecom in China. He is a firm believer of the power of decentralization.
